    cup raw cacao powder
  • 1/2

    cup tahini

    tbs coconut oil
  • 2
    tbs filtered water
    (as desired)


  1. Place all ingredients in a medium sized bowl, and using a hand-held processor, process until a smooth consistency is reached. If it is too thick add a tbsp. of water and keep adding until desired consistency is reached.
  2. The spread can be stored for up to 2-3 weeks in the fridge and also freezes well.


  • This recipe was created by Mandy Sacher, Wholesome Child.
  • You can also replace the tahini with other school-friendly seeds such as pumpkin and sunflower seeds.
  • If your school allows nuts, then you can use ground roasted hazelnuts for a delicious nutty choc spread.
  • If your children are used to sweet chocolate spreads you can increase the sweetness by adding more maple syrup and over time reduce the amount of sweetness used.
  • Substitute maple syrup or rice syrup for honey if desired.
